    We’re still crunching numbers and analyzing data, but we wanted to go ahead and share a couple new resources for following conversations about the Stop Online Piracy Act, otherwise known as #SOPA and its evil twin #PROTECTIP.

    Our friends at The Brick Factory were kind enough to create two instances of their Twitter tracking tool, Slurp140* dedicated to tracking all mentions of the hashtags since December 15th at 1:58 PM EST. Check out the search function and come back tomorrow for a interactive data visulaization.  What was your favorite Tweet about #sopa?
